Question about ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe Motherboard
I can play audio in things such as Winamp, Zoomplayer, and games. However, my Windows alert sounds (chimes, alerts etc) do not play. If I look on the sounds tab to preview it, the play arrow is greyed
out, but if I hit browse, it does show me the wav files, and even these
can be played fine in Winamp. Also, my sounds from Internet browsers are absent, as well as those from messenger programs.
I have a WinXP system SP2, a -completely fresh install-. The issue has persisted since I've first installed the sound drivers, and has been behaving this way since I installed it 4 days ago.
I have tried installing the 5.1 RealTek drivers from the Asus site, as well as tried to download the lastest ones (5.3, I believe?) from the RealTek site directly. All options are unmuted in volume control. (I mean, all, even making sure the extras are displayed under Options > Properties.) It is set properly for Desktop Speakers in WinXP, with default device (and in fact only device) listed for audio playback being the RealTek option. The RealTek sound deck is able to even detect that the speakers I have connected to my line out port are powered speakers, and that they are connected to the proper port. All the tests in the RealTek CP work fine.
Jumpers are aligned properly for my board for onboard sound.
I'm at a loss for thoughts, and google searches aren't getting me anywhere. Can anyone help with this issue?
This isn't a driver issue. In your hardware profile your system's sounds have been disabled. Its part of the performance settings that exist. My suggestion is update to XP SP3 (which can be downloaded), then follow these instructions that Microsoft offers: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307918 and if push comes to shove speak to Microsoft's live chat assistance for free, they should be able to guide you through fixing the settings.
